The Due Diligence process can include a review of the financial, legal, and commercial aspects of a transaction. It can be lengthy and is generally conducted on behalf of a Buyer.
The financial due diligence report is an investigative analysis of the business's financial performance. The report will focus on the robustness of the financial performance, Identifying areas of sensitivity, and ensuring that the funding structure is suitable for the transaction. The report can also include an assessment of the synergies that would be expected to accrue in a transaction.
Legal due diligence is an assessment of the detailed legal landscape within which the target operates and the report will help the buyer understand the potential legal liabilities surrounding a business.
A commercial review will focus on identifying the company’s position in the market, growth opportunities, and how it differentiates itself from its competition.
